Offered is a collector's grade example of the iconic 1952 Bowman Mickey Mantle second-year issue, recently and accurately assessed at the 3.5 VG+ level by the grading experts at PSA. Uniform corner wear and a mild wrinkle account for the technical VG assessment, while the absence of any unsightly stains, print defects, or paper loss merits the extra half-point grade.

In 1952, the talented prospect from Commerce, OK might have struck out 111 times, but his .394 on-base percentage and .530 slugging percentage combined for a .924 OPS (which is simply the sum of the two percentages) to lead the entire American League circuit. His increasing patience at the plate and his natural raw power earned him his first of 14 consecutive All-Star nods as well as a third-place finish in the AL MVP vote. Not bad for a twenty year-old kid from an Oklahoma town with just 2,500 residents.
